Columbus, Ohio – The judges at this year’s Ohio ISA’s Tree Climbing Championship will be using Vertix™ brand headsets on loan from Speak Easy Communication Solutions, Inc. – and the winner of the contest will be awarded a Heavy Industry Communication Rockman Bundle.
While other wireless intercoms are designed to block road noise, these headsets feature noise-cancelling technology designed to block heavy industry low frequency background noise – a technology found no where else in America.
Admission for spectators is free! So, come down to Goodale Park and visit the Speak Easy booth this weekend and meet Alex Kundrat, founder of Speak Easy Communication Solutions, Inc., and learn more about our great tools to make your workplace safer and your communication more effective. Alex has decades of experience as a professional arborist in the eastern ‘burbs of Cleveland. Due to the way these communication solutions have changed Alex’s quality of life, he became motivated to bring this technology to others in his field.
More about the OTCC
Contestants will compete in five preliminary events to qualify as one of the top contestants to earn the right to advance to the championship round – the Masters’ Challenge. The preliminary events include Ascent, Belayed Speed Climb, Aerial Rescue, Work Climb and Throwline. The top in-state contestants who have accumulated the highest combined point totals for the five preliminary events advance to the Masters’ Challenge. Unless otherwise dictated by ISA, the Masters’ Challenge will be set up in an “accumulative” format; that is, points earned during the preliminary events by the top contestants are carried forward into the Masters’ Challenge. Out-of-state climbers may participate in all preliminary events and are eligible to place in these events. Only in-state climbers can advance to the Masters’ Challenge.
